A memory from the past, thank you Ken: When I drove Ken's car

At that time we were both working at IBM Canada and I had told my coworker, Ken, that one of my dreams as a vision-impaired person was to drive a car. Believe it or not, he made it happen! 

On a cool day in the early fall, Ken invited me to sit in the driver's seat of his car and then he took his place beside me in the passenger seat and from there it was nothing but a dream come true for me.

Ken was calm and cool.  He spoke to me in a very easy tone, instructing me how to drive.  We made several turns around the IBM parking lot, maneuvering among parked cars.  Then he instructed me how to back up, how to move forward, and after about 10 minutes we parked his car. 

After we had disembarked, Ken told me how nervous  he had been but I can tell you that he never showed it while we were on our driving expedition.

Thank you, Ken Debono, for having helped me to realize one of my obscure dreams.
